You cannot use surgical spirits on facial piercings and saline solution (mild salty water) is definitely the best.

hey lisa

for all of my piercings i used plain salt water and never got infections or had any problems with the heaking process. You can use a mild anti bacterial soap at bath time and saltwater to clean it you should be cool.
